Thank you to all of you have donated to my Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Fundraiser, the Coach Bag (Ashley Leather Swingpack, Retail value $168.00) raffle has raised almost $1000! That money will go toward cancer research, treatment, and patient outreach.

I won’t announce a winner until Saturday morning, so there’s still time to enter! You can win this bag for as little as $5.00, or you can up your chances by buying multiple entries. A donation of $25 will get you 6 entries, $50 will get you 15 entries. Plus, you know, even if you don’t win you’ll be doing something really great to help those battling cancer…and you’ll get a tax deduction to boot!

As a reminder, this is how it works:

You: Make a donation to my Team-in-Training fundraising page (Link: Then email me at kim(at) to let me know.

I: Will confirm your donation on my page and enter your name and number of entries into an Excel spreadsheet in numerical order, then on Saturday, February 2nd I’ll use the random number generator to choose a winner and announce who the lucky purse-grabber is.

We: Feel really good about ourselves because we’re curing cancer.

Easy. Peasy. Stylish. And Do-good-y all in one shot. What could be better than that!
